News: Valbuena is out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers Impact: Valbuena is batting just .231 against left-handed pitching this season, and with the Cubs facing one of the best southpaws in the game in Clayton Kershaw, it made sense to give him a day off. Righty Mike Olt will man the hot corner in Valbuena's stead.(RotoWire, )

News: Valbuena went 2-for-4 in the Cubs' loss to Toronto on Wednesday. Impact: With Anthony Rizzo (back) on the shelf, Valbuena has been positioned in the heart of the order for the Cubs in recent weeks. He's now hitting .247/.328/.445 on the year, but it's likely that he's auditioning for a role elsewhere in 2015, as the Cubs have a slew of younger options pounding on the door for roster spots.(RotoWire, )
